Wilson Bowls past Foss, Bellarmine Falls

// Richards leads Rams, Vercillo solid for Lions

Continuing their dominating ways on the bowling lanes, the Wilson Rams defeated the Foss Falcons 7-0 on Tuesday afternoon at Tower Lanes. The Rams tallied team scores of 863, 924, 167 and 218 for a total of 2,181 to sweep aside Foss, who tallied scores of 596, 704, 113, and 99 for a total of 1,512. (Note: Two points are given for each of the first team games while single points are awarded for both of the rotating Baker games. Players from both teams rotate bowlers in games three and four and another single point is awarded for the total pins of the combined four-game totals.) Wilson’s Jessica Richards took honors for both teams with games of 223 and 211 for a 434 series, while Kylie Thornton led the Falcons with games of 137 and 169 for a 306 series score.

Over at Narrows Plaza, the Central Kitsap Cougars defeated the Bellarmine Lions by a score of 5-2 with game scores of 690, 762, 129, and 173 for a total of 1,754, while Bellarmine tallied game scores of 693, 728, 110, and 116 for a total of 1,647. Central’s Myranda Stout led all bowlers with games of 195 and 181 for a series score of 376, while Katrina Vercillo topped the Lions with scores of 181 and 169 for a series score of 349.

“Our season has gone well to this point,” said Bellarmine coach Chelsey Rosario, who added that “our girls have improved greatly on picking up their spares and are improving on their team goals for the year which include getting to both district and state play later in the year.”

Leading the Lions for all four years of her bowling career, Vercillo – the team captain – was very happy with both her individual and the overall play of her teammates.

“The season to date has been going very good for me individually and my teammates are also doing very well,” she said of her young squad. “We are very much improved over last year and we hope to make a large impression at both district and maybe state play at the end of the month.”

With the season running short, all three Narrows League teams look to make moves in their last few matchups as the district tournament is fast approaching in late January.
